Intel has unveiled the new NUC X15 Laptop Kit reference platform as a gaming laptop powered by 11th Gen Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series graphics. Such systems are little known among the mass consumer, since they are distributed exclusively through system integrators.
The novelty is ready to offer a six-core Core i5-11400H with a frequency of 2.7 to 4.5 GHz, or an eight-core Core i7-11800H with a frequency range of 2.3 to 4.6 GHz. In the first case, the system can be equipped with a GeForce RTX 3060 graphics accelerator.With a more powerful processor, a choice of a more powerful video card is also available in the form of a GeForce RTX 3070. Unfortunately, Intel does not indicate which graphics accelerator options are used in the system: Max-P (maximum performance) or Max-Q (maximum power consumption).
For all announced configurations, the company is ready to offer up to 64 GB of DDR4-3200 RAM. There are three options for a 15.6-inch IPS-display with frequencies of 144, 165 and 240 Hz and Full HD resolution.
Other interesting features of the Intel NUC X15 Reference System include an opto-mechanical RGB keyboard, support for PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs, and Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.1 connectors. The novelty also has several USB 3.2 ports and support for network wireless standards Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2.
The company did not list the price of the NUC X15 laptop. This factor will depend on the very system integrators who will implement this system.
